Saddle Starting

Saddle starting is available on a month to month basis with discounts for multiple months paid in advance.
for a horse to enter the saddle starting program the must meet the minimum requirements:
Halter broke,


Tie (hard tie, cross tie, ground tie, or any combination or other form is fine),

Pick up all 4 feet

Must be 3+ years of age, (under no circumstance will I saddle start any horse 2 years or younger)

Prefer to be able to load into a trailer but can work around that, however trailer loading is not something that will be worked on in saddle starting-check out problem solving under training if you are interested in trailer loading training

Saddle starting will introduce your horse to the saddle and saddle pad and the saddling process as well as the bridle, bitted and bitless.
The horse will learn to move comfortable with their tack before being introduced to a rider mounting and dismounting and then riding.
The training will also involve dragging and carrying items, obstacle training, trail riding, and more.

Saddle starting is full time training, (training done 5x a week)

$600*/ month**

3 months prepay $1500

6 months prepay $3300

**Note that good saddle starting takes time, if you only plan and pay for 1 month then your horse will know less than one in training for 2, 3, 4+ months.
Trailer-Ins available (additional charge by facility for trailering in)
Travel to you also available: $65 per hour, discounts for multiple days a week.
